  1. Josh the Bookseller's rating of the film Time Regained

    Proust was never my guy. I love modernist lit but always found him bourgeois & cartoonishly sensitive, a tuberculoid Drake. Who else but Ruiz could've not only made this film but made it work for a guy like me? His passion for bizarre editing techniques & surrealist imagery mesh with Proust's decadent pain. The result is long, but never dull, unlike a certain unfinished seven-novel livejournal post.

  2. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Time Regained

    If Proust was destined to write, then Ruiz was destined to film- even simplest of scenes feel extremely cinematic!

  4. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Time Regained

    Chockingly, making film out of Proust is not easy. 2½ hours of rich people in rooms. I don't find it entirely sucessful, but I could also watch it for another seven hours.

  5. Yash Bhati's rating of the film Time Regained

    "In this work is all your life and the life of all men. Reviewing it would take an eternity..."

  6. DrFirestone's rating of the film Time Regained

    Unbelievable cinematographic translation of a feverish confusion, memories clashing and prompting one another, I can't imagine this type of material to be adopted in a different way or a better way... I have to admit, I was tempted to give up about half-way - this film is definitely slow-burning, confusing and it requires some time and effort to "adjust", and once you tune-in what an unforgettable journey it becomes!

  8. aconeyisland's rating of the film Time Regained

    Sleepwalkers of a time past, looking for a lost earring among the graves

  9. Dilara Erdem's rating of the film Time Regained

    Rivayet o ki, '' Saatleri Ayarlama Enstitüsü'' 'nün yazımına vesile olmuştur Proust, son 17 yılında yazdığı '' Kayıp Zamanın İzinde '' kitabının son kısımları temel alınarak çekilen '' Time Regained'' filmi, Angelopoulos'un '' Sonsuzluk ve Bir Gün '' incelikliğinde.Filme Tanpınar'ın şu dizeleri çok yakışırmış '' Ne içindeyim zamanın, Ne de büsbütün dışında;Yekpare, geniş bir anın,Parçalanmaz akışında''

  11. José Neves's rating of the film Time Regained

    35mm, rewatched, re-rated. Between the first time i saw it and now, i read Proust's magna opera and that was exactly the reason that led me to re-approach a film by a filmmaker of whom i very much care and a writer that i admire and, again i realize that the meeting is a failed one. On one hand, the recurrences of ideas and times through literary phrases can never find a cinematographic writing as an illustration...

  12. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Time Regained

    A clash of titans: Marcel Proust, Raul Ruiz, and the giant that is industrialized french cinema - and we're stuck in the middle.

  13. Nicolás Araya's rating of the film Time Regained

    Flashback dentro de otro flashback. Un laberinto por los recuerdos de Proust. Ruiz fue Borges.

  14. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Time Regained

    The story is a snooze-fest, with bland characters. But the cinematography!!!! I was spellbound enough to forgive the ultimate filmmaking sin of a boring story. A story told through the perspective of one ever-hovering, levitating cloud, which we're all invited to take a ride on for the duration of the film.

  15. Ethan's rating of the film Time Regained

    This is a stunning film about memory and loss.

  16. smndvdcl's rating of the film Time Regained

    As a gateway into Proust's mastery, an accessible biopic; his surrounding milieu of early 20th century French aristocratic life is authentically depicted. Superimposed apparitions, montages of time, an ellipsis of colliding memories, linearity playfully manipulated; the blur of each soirée, a canvas of aesthetic and sensory inception, even if it is not definitive in articulating his poetry beyond sight and sound. 3.5

  17. Howard Orr's rating of the film Time Regained

    Exquisitely choreographed magical realist take on Proust; those memories both sweet and bitter, but also not a little of the disillusionment of the present that drove Proust into his self-imposed exile on Boulevard Hausmann. Like Proust's masterwork, the great films implant something in us that cannot be satisfied by the film itself; not an ending but a beginning, an awakening of a forgotten life.

  18. Steve Thompson's rating of the film Time Regained

    Magnificent film-making. I haven't read Proust but this gives the impression of being one of the finest literary adaptations in cinema. Enigmatic, complex and subtle in execution with wonderful acting, compelling cinematography and the master touch of a directorial genius throughout.

  19. raggiodisole's rating of the film Time Regained

    what a whopper! Not certain of its fidelity to the original text, but its captures the vagaries of memory very well

  20. Benji's rating of the film Time Regained

    I really dont like John Malkovitch anymore - or if I ever did - he ruined it for me.

  21. msmichel's rating of the film Time Regained

    Perhaps my favorite literary adaptation period.Ruiz perfectly realized Proust's 'rememberance of things passed" series by structuring his film in a Proustian fashion.There is no true story on display here but a series of memories and recollections as a man reflects back on his life and his work. Cinematic in the extreme, perfectly re-creating the time period with wonderful performances all around. Near perfection.

  22. Anastasia's rating of the film Time Regained

    Someone actually attempted a film version of Proust? I'm intrigued...

  23. Andrei Herea's rating of the film Time Regained

    Reminiscent of Eternity and a Day, Time Regained is a poignant film and a delightful experience through the numerous paths of one's life. A foray into memories engulfed by all of life's senses. Universal and charismatic. One of my favourite films of his without doubt.

  24. lauli's rating of the film Time Regained

    I just LOVED this film. It's mystifying, melancholy, haunting... The music, the perfect cinematography, not to mention the period reconstruction, make it just perfect. Emmanuelle Beart might prompt me to change my sexual orientation, she's that perfect!
